Ingredients

How to make it

  • To start with the roux in a large pot, caldero or dutch oven heat the oil and whisk the flour constantly until it reaches a light sand color.
  • Turn the heat down to just below medium whisking constantly until we get a rich dark brown color (like melted chocolate).
  • Add all the TRINITY chopped celery, onion and pepper along with the the bay leaves and sauté for 5 minutes or until soft, mix and get all incorporated into the roux.
  • Add the garlic and stir to combine.
  • Stir in the sliced okra and cook until it looses it's "stringiness" texture.
  • At this point add the sausage along with the meat or the shrimp and cook/sauté for 10 minutes.
  • Add the parsley and the green onion and stir.
  • Add the stock and the Cajun Seasoning, mix to combine all the ingredients and let it boil, then turn down to a lower heat and simmer for 30 minutes with the lid slightly off.
  • After simmering for 30 minutes add salt & pepper and Tabasco sauce according your own personal taste and stir to combine.
  • To serve Gumbo put a nice scoop of white rice and a good ladle full of the Gumbo on the side, just like in my photo :-)
  • Have slices of fresh and delicious french bread or fresh baked cornbread and a bottle of Tabasco sauce on the table for people to season it as they wish. ENJOY !!!
